The Nigeria Football Federation have informed that at least seven of the players called up for the upcoming friendlies against Cameroon have reported for international duty.
Watford central defender William Troost-Ekong was one of the early arrivals in the Super Eagles camp, having arrived in Austria on Monday, May 31.
Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho, Stoke City-owned midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo, Enyimba duo John Noble and Anayo Iwuala, Omonia Nicosia right-back Abdullahi Shehu and CD Feirense's Marcus Abraham have all landed in Austria.
There was no mention of Wilfred Ndidi in the release by the Federation, South African sports channel SuperSport claimed the holding midfielder was in Austria when he was interviewed on Monday.
Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer, Alloy Agu, has also touched down in the Austrian capital, Vienna ahead of the team's first training session.
Of the twenty-four players named on the finalized roster, five in the shape of Ola Aina, Tyronne Ebuehi, Frank Onyeka, Victor Osimhen and Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo have withdrawn due to physical problems, while there are concerns about the fitness of late invitee Samson Tijani.
Nigeria will take on Cameroon at the Weiner Neustadt Stadium on June 4 and face the same opponents four days later.
